From fire and water there is gold. (Sunshine illuminating raindrops).
The wreck of the HMS Victory, sunk in 1744, has been found off the Channel Islands. Aside from the historical significance (the warship is the predecessor to Lord Nelson’s Victory), it grabbed press attention yesterday because it’s thought it could contain more than a billion Dollars worth of gold. I don’t know the law of Treasure Trove well enough…is this a few bob in all our pockets (if we didn’t already have such an astronomical national debt to repay) or is the Queen the sole beneficiary? Either way, it is pretty exciting news.
